Help PETA and the Danville Area Humane Society Collar a Killer

Written by PETA | July 23, 2010

The folks in PETA’s Cruelty Investigations Department are looking for the cruel, cowardly individual who apparently forced this dog to fight, beat her, shot her in the chest, and left her tied to a tree by an extension cord earlier this week—and they need everyone’s help!



PETA is adding up to $3,000 to the Danville Area Humane Society’s $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever committed this violent crime. Fliers with the dog’s photo and the words “DO YOU KNOW THIS DOG?” are also going up all around Danville, Virginia, where the animal was found covered in bruises and puncture wounds. Anyone with information about the case is urged to contact the Danville Area Humane Society.

This case is a reminder of why it’s so vital to report cruelty to animals before it’s too late. We can’t undo this poor dog’s suffering, but we might prevent other animals from meeting similar fates by keeping our eyes open for animals in need, being “nosy neighbors,” trusting our instincts, and always alerting police and animal control officials right away if we know or suspect that animals are being abused or neglected.

    Animal abuse is on the rise and must be stopped. Its time we bring this information to all school aged children politicans corporations. Sending the message that the USA does not stand for abuse on our animals and severe punishment will occur for those involved. We should have a hot line were people can call in to report anything.

    Yea what did happen to this dog? I know a dog by Fargo ND recently had her throat slit and left to die. She wandered into someones backyard bleeding heavily and someone called law enforcement. She is recovering now but the sick thing is the man did this to her because she was being “bad”

    I doubt they would invest the time and money into checking out the bullet. Its unfortunate but most people do not feel that same as us in regards to issue like this. The cops will say “we have crimes agianst actual humans to worry about” I’ve heard it all before…I’m just hoping and willing that someone will find the piece of sit who did this and pay him back ten fold.

    Jane Karrigan Sometimes in order to not mess up a case some things as you mentioned about the bullet might not be disclosed but of course I’m sure they’re checking out the bullet. There’s many things in investigations that aren’t always revealed immediately. That’s why I’ve seen the public react to cases sometimes thinking that nothing is being done when it actually is albeit covertly.

    Espero que encontrem quem fez isto!!! I hope they find who did this!!!!

    omg this is so horrible it breaks my heart. the person who did this must be sick. wow ‘

  • Margaret Mary Davison says:

    That makes me sick to my stomach! I would think this individual would be a danger to society in general and I hope they catch them. If I found out who it was I would turn them in and let the Humane Society use the money to help other suffering animals.

    I certainly hope they find the murderer of this poor defenseless dog. It’s a sad sad situation know that there are such cruel people in this world.

    This is why Neighborhood Watch associations are so important. Many think dogfighting rings only exsist in rural areas but finding them in the suburbs is not unusual. People need to get over the fear of being a “nosy neighbor”. I had a coworker who sounded off for over 30 minutes one day about her nosy neighbors who called the police when her unsupervised teenagers did anything. “I wish people would mind their own business!” She said. And then later on that very same day she told how her oldest daughter sneaked out of the house one night and was found murdered in Mexico days later. She told of how her neighbors told her of watching her daughter go out the front window night after night and never said anything to her about it or called the police. My reply was “Maybe they did not want to be nosy neighbors.”

    Wow how sad and sick too! I hope someone in the area recognizes the dog and can come forward with some information. Even better would be if the jackass who did this is beat tortured shot and left hanging by some electrical lines by his neck! I have a question for PETA btw. Call me stupid but it wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the article. When the dog was discovered was she dead or alive? I assume she was dead after being shot and tied down but I was just wondering… Also if she was shot then she probably still has the bullet in her chest. If so they could try checking the bullet to help track down the one who did this maybe use it for ballistic tests when they have a potential suspect.

    Poor baby my heart goes out to this poor dog. Not a day goes by when I don’t hear or read about unspeakable cruelty inflicted on defenseless creatures by mans hands. How are we ever going to end this?
